Mother's Day

Is this day hard for anyone else? I lost my mom almost 2 years ago. I love my kids for doing their things for me. It's just even while they are doing all this, all I can think about is her. Is this terrible of me?

  • No,it is not. I lost my mom in 1997 and I think of her often,especially on moms day.

  • No its not terrible of you, of course you have a right to feel that way losing your mom is not a little thing I know its hard to enjoy holidays with your kids when you're missing your mom and I'm so sorry for your loss, take as much time as you need to grieve its better to grieve than to hold it in and risk having a breakdown.

  • It is not terrible. I lost my mom. But I also lost my daughter and now my 4 year old granddaughter has no mom. I really wish we could erase Mother's Day.
